Mainstream media is feeling pressure from the rise of anti-media Americans.
In the months leading up to Donald Trump winning the election, Americans made the determination that Liberal MSM outlets were not propelling the same coverage for Trump as they were for Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Moreover, the hacktivist known as Guccifer 2.0, released e-mails prior to the election that clearly show Liberal outlets CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, The Daily Beast, Huffington Post, and many more, in some way shape or form, colluded with Hillary during her campaign.
And then there is fusion.net, a website that is not only operated by Liberals, but is blatantly one-sided. If you are not a Liberal; your opinion, fears, or facts do not matter.
CNN was accused of giving Hillary a “free ride,” as far as media coverage, during her campaign. In fact, they actually did. CNN’s Chris Cuomo, while on the air, said, “We could not help [Hillary] any more than we have. You know what I mean? She’s got just a free ride from the media…we are the biggest one promoting her campaign, so it better happen.”
In early October, Cuomo also tried to convince CNN viewers that reading WikiLeaks e-mails was illegal. He said it was “different for the media.”
Legal analysts later debunked Cuomo’s statement.
Immediately following the election, social media was flooded with messages from angry Hillary voters as well as people who did not vote. Most of the tweets and Facebook posts were geared toward one thing — the failure of MSM.
MSM, along with several liberal publications — both in print and online — led the public to believe that Hillary would win the election by a large margin. Just before the election CNN ORC Polls showed Hillary at 68 percent with Trump trailing at 27 percent. Therefore, this lead Hillary voters to think she would be the victor.
Most feel that it was the extreme bias from liberal media that tilted the election one way or the other.
CNN, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, and The New York Times all displayed great bias when reporting on the election, and Americans picked up on that. People knew that these liberal media outlets were attempting to pave the way for Hillary.
Tens of thousands of people “hit” social media, and almost immediately began to call for a boycott of liberal news outlets. In some cases, small town newspapers even turned against other media outlets. Those newspapers were then labeled as “right wing,” even though most were not.
Some of the smaller newspapers argued that they were neither conservative or liberal, but rather truthful in their reporting. No bias, just fair and truthful reporting. But isn’t that how media outlets should report? Not according to the liberal media outlets. Many liberal “journalists” felt it was okay to interject their opinion during the campaign.
The Huffington Post went as far as to publish coverage for Trump under their entertainment section.
“We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.”
Most liberal media outlets hardly reported on WikiLeaks e-mails, which exposed Hillary and her staff of wide scale corruption. However, the infamous decade old “grabem’ by the p**sy” leaked audio was daily headlines.
Fox News reported on WikiLeaks continually, but the channel was definitely scrutinized by the liberals for their coverage.
Now, eight days after Trump won the election, CNN political commentators have accused every single person who voted for Trump of being a racist.
On the night Trump one the election, CNN’s political commentator Van Jones called Trump’s win a “white-lash.”
White-lash means – a backlash by white racists against black civil rights advances.
Voters said that Jones’ outburst was not only offensive, but completely inaccurate.
Trump supporters said that even when race is not involved, black liberals play the race card.
Trump has been labeled a racist due to his stance on illegal immigration. Trump want s to build a wall and deport illegal immigrants from the U.S. Trump says they are here illegally, hence the term illegal.
Trump also used the term criminal illegal immigrant. Meaning illegal immigrants who came over as criminals or have committed crimes inside the U.S
The U.S Justice Department told The Daily Lash that illegal immigrants are criminals simply because they are in the U.S illegally.
The U.S Justice Department also said that cities who harbor illegal immigrants could be violating Federal Law by.
Trump’s team says that the term “illegal” is something that liberals can’t seem to grasp.
Hillary supporters believe that Trump is racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and Misogynistic. Namely because of his stance on immigration, the Billy Bush leaked audio, and the fact that numerous women claimed Trump had sexually harassed them.
From the beginning, though he apologized for the “locker room talk”, Trump and his family denied any allegations for sexual harassment.
Trump said that all of the allegations against him have been debunked, or the alleged victims recanted their stories.
Just days before the election, a woman who had accused Trump of raping her when she was a 13-year-old teen model, recanted and dropped a federal lawsuit over the alleged assaults.
Many speculated that the woman, listed as a Jane Doe in the lawsuit, was just seeking a quick payday.
Jane Doe’s attorney refused to answer any questions and gave no explanation as to why the lawsuit was dropped.
But even with the sexual assault accusations behind him, some still feel Trump’s temperament is not right for the task as President of the United States.
But no matter if you support Hillary or Trump, parties from both sides say that the media dropped the ball and that, they have lost all hope for unbiased reporting.
On November 14, Fox News contributor and New York Post columnist, Michael Goodwin, wrote, “Trump’s victory is about change. And our biased mainstream media must change, too.”
